1st Avenue Barbershop will remain at its current address

1st Avenue Barbershop isn’t going anywhere.

The barbershop, a long time staple in Ladysmith is just moving down the hall to make room for the Shoot the Moon pub.

There are three suites within the building. 1st Avenue Barbershop will move into the suite closest to the house at 202/204 Dogwood. The other two suites will be combined to make up the interior of the pub.

Nikole Texidore and Tom Hennessy of 1st Avenue Barbershop are happy to stay right where they are.

After an article published in the Chronicle on January 23 stated the pub would occupy the building currently used by the barbershop, customers flooded the shop with calls asking where the barber shop would move to.

“We probably had 20 people phone, maybe more,” Hennessy said.

They are not expecting any closures during renovations.

“Maybe we’ll shut down for a long weekend, but we’ll still be in business,” Texidore said.

Texidore said that she’ll be posting updates through her personal social media @thecurlybarber on Instagram, and at First Ave Barber Shop on Facebook.

“It’s going to be nice, and better,” Hennessy said. “It’s going to be good.”
